Benefits of integrated cooling in a meat tumbler: 

  • Costs of cooling a whole room uses a massive amount of kW/h compared to a tumbler that has cooling directly in the jacket
  • Efficiency of a tumbler in a fridge / cooled room, is much lower than a tumbler with cooling directly in the jacket - during the cycle meat generates heat and in order to keep the temp down, you have to pause (typically 10min turn, 5 min pause). In a machine with cooling the drum is much colder so the product temp stays low and you can eliminate the pause. This means that daily production on a cooling machine is equivalent to a none cooling machine with a much higher capacity. This depends on cycle time, but a 2000 litre cooling tumbler might be equivalent to a 3000 litre tumbler without cooling.
  • Placing a non-cooling tumbler in a fridge creates more reliability issues. Vacuum pumps dont like the cold, particularly when first starting up. Electrics like control panel can have more issues with condensation etc.

The Nowicki MA 1000 PSCH vacuum tumbler with cooling is built using the latest CE directives and the highest hygiene leves using acid-resistant stainless steel of grade 304 (AISI). The cooling vacuum tumbler is designed to tenderize and soften the meat in vacuum during the production of ham, shoulder, sirloin, bacon and soft pieces of chicken. The Nowicki MA 1000 PSCH vacuum tumbler does this by using its specially designed paddles inside the drum and the operator freindly touch screen control panel. Both these things combined with the system of chilling the drim casing enable the vacuum tumbler to achieve the required quality parameters of the tenderised meat, to increase the output of finished product, to achieve the optimum binding of proteins and to reduce the mixing time to a minimum with no negative effect on the appearance of the fresh meat muscles. 

The cooling system on vacuum tumblers has many benefits in production:

  • shortens the massaging times
  • maintains the temperature inside the drum at the same level
  • maintains the natural colour of the product
  • high production efficiency
  • high product quality, regardless of the temperature conditions in the curing plant
  • optimal binding of proteins
  • improves the micro-biological quality of the product

Vacuum in the Nowick MA 1000 PSCH vacuum tumbler is done by a Busch vacuum pump which is connected to the machine via the front opening lid, meaning even higher hygiene levels inside the drum. The Busch vacuum pump is protected from flooding by the use of two external vacuum traps. The inside of the drum is polished to give better massage results on larger meat muscles, and the specifically designed paddles allow for gentle and consistent tumbling / marinating. The drum is driven by using SEW / NORD gearboxs with breaks for positioning and frequency drive for variable speed settings. 

The vacuum tumbler has a temperature monitor through the central shaft at the back or the machine (optional) or in glycol system (standard), which makes sure the temperature is maintained at the level requested by the operator. 

The cooling of the vacuum tumbler is done via the ZCh cooling unit and double insulated cooling jacket with glycol cooling agent. 

The Nowicki MA 1000 PSCH vacuum tumbler is fitted with a 5.7" (standard) touch screen control panel, with options to increase this to 7.5" or 12" allowing further weighing system and RFID radio-frequency identification to be added with these larger touch screens. 

The control panel is extremely operator friendly with languages in English and German as standard. The touch screen control panel is located next to the opening hole, and is fitted with a protective screen. The control panel is rated at IP69and allows the operator to control drum speed, vacuum level, timers, temperature, monitoring parameters, deferred start times and pulsating vacuum. 

The option to add SCADA to the vacuum tumbler is available to allow for remote control and monitoring and more analysis, giving the customer is more control and repeatability when using the vacuum tumbler. 

Loading of the Nowicki vacuum tumbler is done easily via the front opening hole, this can be done by hand or via one of Nowicki's excellent automatic loading systems, capable of lifting 200 litre toten bins and passing the product down a chute and into the vacuum tumbler. These loading system can be used for individual vacuum tumblers or complete lines. Unloading is done via the same front opening hole and the drum roated backwards allowing for the paddles inside the drum to push the product gently out of the opening hole.
